I am happy to announce the launch of a new logo as part of the ongoing evolution of the DNgeek blog. What started as a personal experiment 14 months ago has grown into a publication with 188 articles, 1000+ comments, hundreds of subscribers and close to 10,000 monthly visitors.
There are many awesome blogs covering our industry but I am proud that DNgeek managed to find its own little niche and become an authoritative site on anything related to brandable domain names and startup naming. It has become a place where many great discussion are being held and where I made many new friends and connections.
As the blog continues to evolve, traffic continues to grow and more great content is being served (partly due to Keith deBoer his great contributions!) I thought this was a good time to evaluate our logo to ensure it was in sync with who we are and where we are going.
I wanted a new logo as well as a mascot that embodies the site and the niche we cover. Something that is modern, youthful and playful. I’ve always liked the fox because of its typical canine qualities such as loyalty, passion and creativity. It’s an animal well known for its sharp mind, engaging personality and a love for exploration. I hope you guys like the new logo as much as I do.
